Before and After: Colorful Living Room Makeover

Redesigners Judy Anderson and Jackie Davis bring color and additional seating to a living room.

Before: This room has the right elements, but it lacks balance.

With a simple re-arrangement and a few additional pieces, the designers add the right touches to create a living room that works.

  • The sofa is angled in a corner and the two recliners are aligned with the angle of the carpet.
  • The ottoman is brought back into the room as a coffee table rather than additional seating.
  • An upholstered arm chair helps to balance the visual weight in the room.
  • Additional tables and lamps are brought in from other rooms.
  • Carefully-placed art and accessories complete the new look.
